hi all new cichlid setup adelaide australia

hi all
i'm new here and have just gotten into the aquarium scene i'm from adelaide
i've just purchased one 350 litre aquarium which i'm currently in the process
of setting up as an african cichlid setup it's currently in the third week of the cycling
process some details of the tank:

substrate: crushed coral
rocks ect: 30kg of texas holey rock, smashed garden pots ect
filters: eheim 2025 and a jebo 915
1x powerheads
3x airstones

aquarium is cycling well taking about a day to bring ammonia down to 0 and nitrates being about 1.5ppm good ph of little over 8.2 due to texas holey rock and crushed coral kh and gh are perfect due to homemade cichlid salt this is my first aquarium but done alot of research and am having fun everything coming along great i also have a small 90 litre tank with similar setup wich i plan to use as hospital and as growing out tank etc when i am ready to stock with fish it will hopefully be as follows

Pseudotropheus saulosi: 1 male,4 female
electric yellow: 1 male,4 female
rusty cichlid: 1 male,4 female
Cynotilapia axelrodi: 1 male 4 female
1 large clown loach (that will be very slowly acclimatised to higher ph water)

let me know what you think thanks
